Our goal is for our students to be competitive as college students and college graduates; to do that, our rigor and expectations in middle school and high school must be high.
By reaching to meet these expectations, students demonstrate that they share this core value of graduating from college and that they are committed to creating bright futures for themselves, their families, and their communities.

We currently offer the following AP classes in each academic area. While we aim to offer the same AP courses from year to year, our AP course offerings are based on the availability of a well-prepared teacher for a given course.
Students who enroll in an AP course are required to take the AP exam in the spring semester, which requires paying the appropriate exam fees as well. All seniors are enrolled in AP English Language due to district academic requirements, so this course is the only AP exam students are not expected to pay for.
- English: AP English Literature (11th), AP English Language (12th)
- Math: AP Calculus AB (12th)
- Science: AP Biology (10th – 12th), AP Physics 1 (11th), AP Physics C (12th), AP Environmental Science (12th)
- Social Studies: AP US History (11th)
- World Language: AP Spanish Language (9th – 12th), AP Spanish Literature (9th – 12th)
Tutorials are offered to students in all core content courses: English, math, science, social studies, and world language.
- Each core content course will offer 60 minutes of tutorials a week. These can take place during lunch, after school, or a combination of both.
- Families can expect communication from teachers about mandatory tutorials at least 24 hours in advance of the tutorial.
- After school tutorials are released at 5:10. Students will be monitored by the tutorial teacher in front of the school until all students are picked up by a parent or guardian.
- If a student does not attend a mandatory tutorial, the student will earn a detention & the tutorial teacher will call to follow up.
Students who fail 1 or 2 total semesters of their core classes will need to attend Summer Credit Recovery in order to earn the necessary credits to be promoted to the next grade.
The cost of Summer Credit Recovery is $200 per semester.
Classes run the first 3 weeks of summer at another YES Prep campus.
